Welcome to the Spring Blog Hop!

Welcome to the Spring Blog Hop being brought to you by our wonderful hostess  Lisa from Scrappin' in NJ!  I am excited to be participating in another blog hop so soon after my first one!  I have always enjoyed going on the blog hops and seeing all of the wonderful creations and it is even better being able to create and showcase something of my own for the hop!  A big thank you goes out to Lisa for inviting me to join! If you have arrived here from Melanie's blog Scrappily Ever After (don't you just love her blog name?!)  then you are in the right place!  If you just happened to stop by my blog and would like to start at the beginning of the hop then please go to Lisa's blog Scrappin' in NJ.  I am thrilled to be a part of this hop with such amazing crafty ladies! 

Lisa asked that we do an Easter or Spring related project.  I cannot tell you how ready for Spring I am!!!!!! I have had more than enough of the snow and cold and I'm ready for sunshine, rain, grass, flowers and LONGER DAYS!!!  Bring on SPRING!!!

I am over the moon in love with my new Disney and Pixar cartridges (yeah I know...shocker huh?) so there was no way I could resist using Thumper from Bambi as my Easter Bunny!   For those of you unaware...Disney just released Bambi on Blu-ray/DVD this past Tuesday!  You better hurry and get your copy before it goes back into the vault!  Yes...I've seen one too many Disney movie commercials!  We already had Bambi on VHS and DVD, but of course we had to get it on Blu-ray too!! 



The patterned background paper is by Me & My Big Ideas.  Thumper was cut from Core'dinations paper with the Disney Classics Cricut cartridge at 5".  The eggs were cut from Core'dinations paper with the Smiley Cards Cricut cartridge using the hide/contour feature to get rid of the faces at 1 1/2".  The grass was cut from Core'dinations paper with the Plantin Schoolbook cartridge at 1 1/2".  I used the Tiny Bubbles, Spots & Dots and Swiss Dots Cuttlebug folders to emboss the eggs and then blinged them up with Stickles before pop dotting them on the card. 




Thank you so much for stopping by my blog! I hope you will become a follower if you are not already. If you like what you see please come back to visit me real soon!  Those of you that are already followers know that I'm normally sporting a Disney dominated song playlist on my blog...I decided to have some fun and make some new playlists to go along with my blog hop themes!  Hope you are enjoying it! 

Can't let you leave without offering up some blog candy!  Lisa from Stamp Out Online has been generous enough to donate a personalized stamp to one of my lucky followers!  Those of you that already follow me probably remember my excitement when my own personalized stamp arrived back in January!  I will tell you that Lisa is an absolute dream to work with and happily put up with my numerous emails back and forth until my stamp was exactly how I wanted it!  If you are in the market for any kind of personalized stamp please stop over and visit Lisa at Stamp Out Online or go to the Stamp Out Online Facebook page and "like" her!  Please be sure to tell her that Melissa at Disney Dreamer Designs sent you! 


Winner will get their choice of stamp (wooden or self inking) and can provide any custom information that they would like added.  Design and stamp prize value up to $40!  How cool is that?!?! 

To be eligible for a chance to win the blog candy please complete these two requirements (good for one comment and one entry):
1. Please leave me a comment on this post.
2. Please become a follower of my blog.

If you would like a second entry for this blog candy, please post about it on your blog and then come back here and leave me second comment with a link to your blog post

If you would like a THIRD entry for this blog candy, please go to Stamp Out Online Facebook page and "like" them, leave Lisa a comment letting her know that Melissa at Disney Dreamer Designs sent you and then come back here and leave me a third comment letting me know you did!
